Configure erl-jabberd server

Unread post by indy1899 » Wed Feb 07, 2018 10:15 pm

Hello,
I have trouble to configure a erl-ejabberd XMPP server ony my DS218+.

What I want: A local xmpp server on the synology discstation, only for local LAN users, no connection to outside jabber servers.

I installed "erl-ejabberd" via IPKGui/IPKG ( erl-ejabberd_2.1.11-1_i686.ipk ) and I tried to configure the configuration file.
But I become it not running when I try to start it.

Erl-jabberd server is new for me. I also used google diverse tutorial text, videos, ect, ... but i can't find my mistake. I'm not sure what I have to insert in the confuguration file and for example in /etc/hosts, that I have a domain.
In the past I had an xmpp server running on my raspberrry Pi and my desktop-PC, but always " prosody" and not ejabberd.

if someone's has erl-jabberd running, I'd be happy to get a few tips

Hi,

Does nobody has an idea how to become a local ejabberd server running???

I deinstalled ejabberd now and reinstalled it again. I don't change anything in the config file /opt/etc/ejabberd/ejabberd.cfg and then I start ejabberd with the command:
/opt/sbin/ejabberdctl/ start

But when I'm checking the status
/opt/sbin/ejabberdctl/ status
Then I become the output:

The node ejabberd@localhost is started with status: started
ejabberd is not running in that node
Check for error messages: /opt/var/log/ejabberd/ejabberd.log
or other files in that directory.

Bit I have no log file. In the directory /opt/var/log/ejabberd/ is only one file with the name erlang.log. But no ejabberd.log
Has anybody a xmpp server on DSM6 running?
